• Welcome to the Endeavor Team


    Welcome to Endeavor at EMS! We hope that you are enjoying your summer.  We are looking forward to the upcoming school year with you and know that it will be a great year together! 

    This year, we are asking students to bring a backpack to carry their school supplies as we will not be using lockers to store our supplies.  

    You will be receiving a chromebook to use for your everyday school work.  In the first few weeks of school, we will review proper computer etiquette and care.  Chromebooks will not be allowed to go home.

    One change for this year is that students will be having Physical Education everyday they are in school.  The plan is for PE to be outside so students will need to come prepared regardless of the weather.


    This year, EMS has scheduled our annual ice cream social for Monday, August 29 from 4:30 to 5:30.  Please come by and say hello, sign up for fall athletics and grab some yummy treats!

    The first day of school is Wednesday, August 31st.  Reminder that since this is a Wednesday, you will be leaving early at 2:15.  Please bring the following with you:


    • a filled water bottle

    • school supplies - See supply list below

    • healthy snack 

    • your summer reading “homework”

    • clothes and shoes for being active

    • well-rested mind and body eager to begin a new year

    Please ask your parent(s) to e-mail your Endeavor homeroom teacher to confirm you received this letter. They may include any other e-mail addresses that should be on the team newsletter distribution list. If you or your parents have any questions, please contact us. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
